Oh Elkhorn City, little town! On which the Cumberland look down Fond and protectingly. Around your nothern border grows The spruce pines, and the Sandy flows Among them tranquilly. Your streets are ornamented well With trees and cottages where dwell Ever contentedly A people, hospitable and kind, To life and duty never blind High minded proud and free. O Elkhorn City! In my heart I hold for you a goodly part Of love's devotion true; And this my wish: That he above May ever spread his wings of love Around and over you.
